Not your ordinary Psychological Thriller and worth a Second Watch!
11 February 2010 | by mrcibuburSee all my reviews

This is a very decent psychological thriller horror with some excellent acting and there is nothing cheap or cheerful about this movie, I like movies which make you think and ask questions and this film - a little bit like Lovely Bones recently - makes you do that.

The film in a way also reminds me of the recent horror Vacancy with the couple on the run and the couple conveniently being in a range of a farmhouse when they crash the car.

Chad has a gambling problem - but why was he gambling? And how was the 25K paid? I assume the house where they lived was rented, not owned, and they gave the furniture away to a neighbour, so took nothing away with them in the car, or so it seemed.

The girl clearly had a problem in childcare and a healthcare issue with her baby. They both had a problem and the visitation to the farmhouse was a sort of addressing of their guilt and wrongs, so how I seem the drowning of the girls head and the prompt for Chad to justify himself as a man and try and save her.

There is A TOUCH of SAW 6 in this morality (if there is any morality).

The deaf guy is a key character in the story but is he the only worker to be employed on such a large vineyard 30 miles from anywhere? Absurd but intriguing. The sinister couple too busy bonking to put their hand to the hands on management of the vineyard.

Great ending but I still don't get the opening scene when Scarlet the girl is a child and is flash backed again at the end. Need to watch again for further curiosity.

Overall, excellent thriller, not top-drawer but enjoyable in this specific film sector although why they persist in including mindless eroticism (sex scene with the open door) is quite beyond me. A theme of many of such films of date

I have some AFTERTHOUGHTS to my original posting.

Of course what has happened is that the couple have wronged with the death of their child and perhaps cashed in an insurance Policy to meet the gambling debt and fund a getaway. But this is wrong through the eyes of God and the car accident is their penitence and punishment for eternity, hence the role played by Lil and Samyel, although brutal and horrific, is intended to send a very clear message - and it surely does.

In life there is no second chance. there is also a slight moral connection with the Cohens A Serious Man (but only slight).

Wow, this is a real thinking film, there is definitely a similarity in this movie with what happened to the little girl in Lovely Bones and the couple in the car crash. Enjoy this movie, its great!
